that . and here are head lines. secretary of state hilary clinton meeting one on one with israeli benjamin netanyahu. sources tell folks news that they had an in-depth discussion about iran. netanyahu urged countries to get a clear red line. clinton reiterated the united states position that diplomacy. >> america want to resolve the issue through diplomacy and we believe there is time and pace to do so and that time is not unlimited and the united states will do what we must to prevent iran from obtaining an nuclear weapon. >> gretchen: president obama was critized for not meeting with netanyahu during the period . he will likely call him . and mitt romney will also call netanyahu today . >> gretchen: brand new video out of nepal. 19 people were killed in the crash that happened minutes from take off. the pilot reported trouble and trying to turn back . officials are not sure it caught fire before or after it crashed. brand new details in the deadly work place shooting in minnesota. an ex-sign employee open be fire killing four people before killing himself . he looked for the people who f
-elect bill clinton, you better have republicans in the congress to make sure to keep him in check. i think it may be a little early for that yet. i think the president still has weaknesses because of the economies, and i think because of that mitt romney's gin more chances than he otherwise would to make his case to the american people. i think this very first debate next week may be his last best chance to make his case. >> do you think if the debate's a flop for mitt romney that all of a sudden some super-pacs and big dollar donors, some of the establishment, do they begin to abandon him next thursday? >> i think it will certainly heighten and go to defcon five. what's the next color is on the homeland security chart, i lose track of them, we'll probably go to. i think what mitt needs to do, craig -- >> fuchsia. >> -- is really be himself. stop trying to be a conservative. he's not. we're not talking about a guy with deep ideological convictions. his real moral convictions are in his family where he has a picturesque american model there. beyond that, he's known for making money for hims
attended both the netanyahu speech. instead they went to have lunch with hillary clinton and the foreign ministers of the five permanent members of the security council. you know, ultimately that's hillary clinton's call. as i say, i would have recommended being in the hall to have a higher ranking official there. >> greta: why wouldn't she -- why wouldn't they want to do that? am i way too sensitive about this? with all the sort of problems that president obama has seemingly had with the prime minister, why wouldn't we want to show huge respect, especially after yesterday with ahmadinejad speaking on yom kippur, all the sleights that the israelis have had the last few days. >> well, you know, that's a question that goes to a course of conduct by the obama administration for 3 1/2 years of just utter disdain for both prime minister netanyahu and the state of israel. and it's simply one more brick in the wall of the case that the president's perfectly prepared to isolate israel and that he does not hold the u.s./israel relationship in the same high regard as every other president going ba
and the mamaude abbas. but instead, she went to lunch with secretary of state hillary clinton and five members of the security council. that's hillary clinton's call. i would have recommended being in the hall to have a higher-ranking official there. >> why wouldn't they want to do that? am i just way too sensitive about this? with all the sort of problems that -- that the president obama has seemingly had with the prime minister, why wouldn't we want to show huge respect, especially yesterday after ahmadinejad speaking on yom kippur and the slights that the israelis have had the last few days? >> you know, that's a question that goes to a course of conduct by the obama administration for 3 1/2 years of utter disdain for both prime minister netanyahu and the state of israel. and it is simply one more brick in the wall of the case that the president's perfectly prepared to isolate israel and does not hold the israel/u.s. relationship in the high regard of every other president since harry s. truman. so i think it's in line with the administration's effort to distance itself, which has been mani
. so no, no regrets. >> i sat down with president clinton, president ahmadinejad. i've had world leaders rolling in and out of here all week, stephanie. >> i'm sorry, say that again, piers? >> i said i've sat down this week with president clinton, with president ahmadinejad. with tony blair. i've had world leaders coming out of my ears this week. couldn't the president have found time to have met some of them or maybe even come on my show and met them? >> well, as i said, the president always makes time for world leaders. it's an ongoing thing. he talks to them all the time. it's not just about scheduling meetings in new york. it's about conversations and meetings all year long, as part of your full-time job. so no regrets about this past week, and you know, those conversations will continue. >> i'm sure we will be talking again soon. stephanie cutter, thank you very much. >> thank you, piers. >>> let's bring in my political all-stars now. republican strategist kellyanne conway and former michigan governor jennifer granholm. welcome to you both. wow, you're both in blazing red. >
to the clinton global initiative about reforming foreign aid, for god's sake. there was a huge opportunity missed. the core problem is this un willingness to go large, to go big. he seems reluctant to do it. >> nina? >> i will not take on charles on the merits of the arguments, although i agree that a major foreign policy speech -- i don't think what a change things, but it would make him look like a more serious person in some ways. but i think that 47% tape was lethal. now, he has not lost, and barack obama is not a great campaigner, and when it is in practice, he is a pretty good debater. -- mitt is in practice, he is a pretty good debater. but because the 47% video was truly genuine, because it was him talking and not knowing he was taped, and played into every stereotype of barack obama saw to paint about him, it has had an enormous effect. >> evan? >> it should not be bad politics -- to be a bad politician should not necessarily heard you when people hate politicians. but romney has not been able to turn that into our virtue. there is the reliability problem, and if there is what nina is ta
and, in fact, perhaps too cautious. you've got hillary clinton going to, perhaps, a dozen meetings with foreign leaders and president obama already out of here in ohio, not meeting with any of the foreign leaders, do you think that they are playing it too safe by not meeting with president morsi, not meeting with netanyahu, avoided any pitfalls here in new york? >> well, maybe, but i heard bill clinton answer that question. he as always dispenses wisdom. the problem with meeting let's say netanyahu and the egyptian leader and libyan leader is you didn't meet with five or six other leaders. you've got to be all-in and meet with 15 or 16 or you just don't meet with any. and given the nature of the campaign, i mean if you look at prior presidents at this u.n. meeting, they didn't meet with any leaders either. >> well, i -- vin? >> governor rendell saying, president clinton is saying. on the other hand this is not just any moment. this is a moment of greatest foreign policy crisis in this administration. so for him to decide that the campaign is more important because he'd have to meet
of state hillary clinton meets with the israeli prime minister later this evening. for more on all of this we get two views. paul pillar had a 28-year career at the c.i.a., much of it focusing on the middle east. he's now a non resident fellow at georgetown university. and robert satloff is executive director of the washington institute for near east policy, a washington think tank. and we thank you both for being with us again. let me start with you, paul pillar. did you hear something new in what prime minister netanyahu said today? >> not really. the prime minister, of course, has been agitating and warning on the subject for quite some time and going beyond mr. netanyahu we've seen over the last several years, in fact, progressive projections that iran is on the verge of a nuclear weapon. most of those projections have not borne out. but what we didn't get in this-- in the comments by the prime minister was really a clear sense of what his preferred red line would be. if we take literally what he did with his red marker on his prop it would suggest he's say nothing 90% enrichme
outsourced his foreign policy to hillary clinton? and what about the incredible cover up of the libyan terrorist attack. this could be benghazi gate on the eve of the election. also this evening, mitt romney should draw a red line for middle income taxpayers and say you will not lose your deductions and you will get yours lower tax rates. he has to have a chris cal clear growth message in next week's debate. it could be his last chance. plus the nfl made a deal overnight and the real refs will be on the field this evening. this is a huge story where there were billions of dollars at stake. we have an exclusive new england patriots owner robert kraft joins me this evening. he is the first owner to speak out. all right. following monday's outburst by mahmoud ahmadinejad, it was israeli benjamin netanyahu's turn today. danielle lee joins us with the details. >> good evening. today prime minister netanyahu used a cartoon-like graphic to drive home his fear that iran could have a nuclear bomb completed by this coming summer. he said the time for peaceful negotiations is running out. from a
. bill clinton had two. but there could be a bunch in a hurry. justice ginsburg is the most likely to leave. and if president obama wins, that wouldn't change the balance of five republicans and four democrats. but if the five-to-four balance shifts, you could see dramatic dramatic changes in the court. it all depends on who leaves. >> do you simply assume president obama would name someone like sonja sot ma yor or clarence thomas for that matter? can you just assume those would be the possibilities, the probabilities if you will? >> that is precisely what i would assume. you know, there's a mythology about the court that presidents often are surprised by how their justices turn out. but you know, that is very much the exception rather than the rule. if you look at the justices currently on the court right now, every single one of them has turned out more or less as predicted. sure there are individual cases, there are surprises. i certainly was surprised by chief justice roberts' vote in the affordable care act case. but by and large presidents what you see is what you get. and wh
and former advisor to president clinton. mark these send, fellow at american enterprise institute and former speechwriter for president george w. bush. mark, what the intel services are telling us now is that not only was what she said not true, but this administration knew it wasn't true and they knew it for several days. not only did they know this was a terrorist attack, but, they knew it had been listed officially inside the government as a terrorist attack. that they were searching for the suspects. that it was an attack on u.s. soil, which a u.s. consulate is. and the first u.s. ambassador to be killed since 1979. they knew all that when susan rice was sent out to tell us it was in response to a video and just a spontaneous act. what, please put this in perspective for us. >> well, let's have the most generous interpretation possible for this administration. when eli lake broke the story, why i think it is wrong, this is only explanation possible. when eli lake broke the story. megyn: "daily beast". >> yeah for "the daily beast", soon after the attack we had a pretty good bead on some
seemed to be well understood privately. finally yesterday, secretary of state clinton talked about the specific al-qaeda affiliate aqim that implicated in the benghazi attack. saying this -- >> for some time, al-qaeda in the islamic magrab and other groups have launched attacks and kidnappings from northern mali to neighboring countries. now, with a larger safe haven, and increased freedom to maneuver, terrorists are seeking to extend their reach and their networks in multiple directions. >> asked if the intelligence community cleared ambassador rice controversial claims about benghazi, spokesman for the national security council insisted her statements were consistent with the information available to intelligence community at that time. as for the use of the word spontaneous, administration official told fox the militants in benghazi saw the events in cairo, specifically the storming and overrunning of the embassy. that in part inspirespired the t or influenced them. >> bret: i'm hearing a lot of anger privately about these close door briefings between what lawmakers are hearing
directly and when hillary clinton started to ame al-qaeda, the state department backed off. here she is in the u.n. meeting we reported on last night connecting al-qaeda linked groups to what she called the tragic attack. >> for some time, al-qaeda in the islamic mag and other groups have launched attacks and kid p kidnappings to other countries and are working with other extremists to undermine the transitions in north africa as we tragically saw in benghazi. as we tragically saw in benghazi. after our show, the state department backtracked saying clinton was speaking generally about al-qaeda, which is why it is important to tell you what we have confirmed tonight. a senior u.s. official tells cnn that u.s. intelligence knew the benghazi attack was the work of extremists affiliated with or inspired by al-qaeda and they knew this within 24 hours of the attack. something does not add up. if u.s. intelligence knew al-qaeda linked groups were involved, why didn't the secretary of state or the white house say so? if not to the public, at least in the briefings they've provided to intell
hy clinton is going to meet with netanyahu. last november, there was an exchange where then president sarkozy of france called netanyahu a liar, and president obama said -- this was all caught on a hot mike -- sarkozy says, i cannot bear netanyahu. he's a liar. and then president obama says, you're fed up with him, but i have to deal with him even more often than you, being critical of prime minister netanyahu. meanwhile president netanyahu is trying to save his country from a dictator that's trying to wipe his country off the map. >> well, i think it's clear that president obama is the most hostile president to the state of israel since it was created in 1948. i think he would do almost anything to isolate the netanyahu government in particular. but i think what's really driving obama right now is he doesn't want anything to happen before november 6th. he doesn't want to meet with any world leaders who might say something off script. he doesn't want to meet with bibi netanyahu and risk another blowdown just before the election. he'd just as soon go through the motions and hope the re
clinton with this u.n. general assembly visit. not meeting with one world leader at that time. do you think the president passed up an opportunity to meet eye too eye? we know the phone calls happened behind the scenes and we know there is leader shich wiship wi perception being a reality. >> i was u.n. ambassador. i accompanied president clinton when he had meetings at the u.n. at the u.n., you don't have to have one-on-one bilaterals. you see all of these leaders at lunches, at receptions, at dinners. he has talked to the leaders recently that he needs to, prime minister netanyahu, karzai of afghanistan, the pakistanis, the middle east, the european leaders. you know, this is a very weak kind of accusation. secretary of state clinton speaks for the president. she's a very strong and power phil s ful secretary of state. i've been here at the u.n. the last few days complaining about mo meetings with secretary clinton. i think it's a misguided criticism. this is politics. and unfortunately some of this criticism on libya, on the arab spring, on what happened with the ambassador has nev
to be an investigation? are you confident in the investigation going on? secretary clinton has come forward and said the fbi's in the early stage of the investigation -- >> so early they haven't gotten to benghazi. >> that's the thing. they're not even able to go to benghazi and the site is still not secure. what does that tell you? >> i think it tells me that over time, the details always come out. i'm not sure what we can really be gained in immediate investigation of the kind you're talking about because the crime scene is basically so badly compromised but over time, we will -- there were intercepts, there were other information. there's some information that convinced the president of the legislative assembly to go on our nationwide tv and say we know it's al qaeda. now, i don't know that, but it was clearly a terrorist attack and the administration described it as not being so. they owe the american people an explanation. >> there are some republicans saying this is -- i talked to a congressman last night who said this is a failure of the obama administration. do you see it as that, the way, w
guess would be five with hillary clinton and three with -- with john mccain. but this, of course, would be the very first debate for -- for governor romney. the cynic in me says this memo is really all about lowering expectations. because if you can lower expectations, whoever beats a low expectation will be the -- the -- seemingly the winner. is that true? >> well, you know, we have televised debates. you have a couple levels of that. you have people who are going to talk about how someone looked, how their makeup looked. remember with nixon it was about how he sweated. with george bush it was about looking at his watch. it's about someone's eye contact with the camera. but what this really still has to come down to is reminding voters what we're facing. and if we continue to import oil, and fund opec and send our soldiers to defend opec oil fields and lose our blood and treasure there, that's a concern. if we talk about the problems with china and the manipulating their currency and that affecting our manufacturing, that's a concern. it's about the cost of health care rising, about go
to be careful. you've got to proceed very cautiously to understand exactly what went on. secretary clinton, to her credit, has immediately initiated what already exists under the law, a formal inquiry with one of our most respected independent diplomatic figures, ambassador tom pickering, former undersecretary. he is heading this up and they will get the answers. i'm absolutely confident about that. what the republicans ought to be doing is not turning the tragedy of chris stevens' death -- this means something to us. chris stevens worked on our committee. he worked for dick lugar. he was a pearson fellow. he was a terrific ambassador representing our country. he cared about libya. he was committed to libya. and what are the republicans doing? all they can do is see the politics in this. they can't see how are we going to make sure that libya continues down the road to democracy and that those 30,000 libyans who stormed the militia headquarters and stole the weapons, are backed up over the next days in efforts that will help them make libya the libya we all want it to be. that's the questi
